  1. Great to hear from different experiences. Magnesium Citrate does not help me as much as the Magnesium Taurate. I also hear some people benefit more from the Magnesium Oil so it does not upset your GI. Now, I know that I may sound a little out there but I have started to listen to a life coach podcast with Brooke Castillo and it has helped me to keep thinking positive things throughout the day and I really believe that our thoughts can control our feelings and therefore it has some control over the autonomic system. It is very easy to give up and feel miserable when our bodies start to act up, but we do have control over our emotions and feelings when we change our thoughts. We cannot change our circumstances, but we can change our thoughts.
  2. I agree with you that it can be dangerous. I read the book "What Doesn't Kill Us" about the method, and the author warns of the dangers. I am also not planning on the cold showers until allergy season ends as my body right now has enough just dealing with pollen. But I have started doing a little bit of the breathing exercises and seems that it has a good effect on my body (even if only placebo effect). Just calmer, or something like that. The book tells of people with autoimmune diseases or chronic diseases that have gotten better with the method. Definitely, it should be done very carefully and may not be for everyone.
  3. So I have had most of the POTS symptoms for the past 8 years, I have never been diagnosed because no doctor ever made the connection, so over the past 8 years I have been able to calm down most of my symptoms doing my own research. Now that I have learned about Dysautonomia it all makes sense, but I probably won't show the changed postural heart rate in a test because my POTS is controlled. And I don't want to stop doing the things I am doing to see if I get a diagnosis. The main thing that helped me was to start taking 2 pills of Magnesium Taurate every night before sleep. I stopped having tachycardias, heart pains, and anxiety attacks. Has anyone tried Magnesium Taurate? After my symptoms got better, I started running and that also helped a lot. Besides that, I have a very strict diet, no gluten, no dairy, no artificial anything, mostly home cooked meal, no caffeine except for half a cup of green tea, no sodas, and almost no sugar. I also take olive leaf extract, curcumin, Q-10, B vitamins, and during my period Blood Builder Iron supplement. To help with allergies and digestion I take Quercetin Bromelain Forte by Prothera. Once in a while, I take flax oil, Nascent Iodine, collagen, and maca. I still feel tiredness, GI symptoms, frequent urination, etc I have decided now to start trying the Win Hof Method to see if I can control my Autonomic System Any thoughts?
